Content Creation with Gutenberg

WordPress 5 was released in December. With this release came the new block editor, Gutenberg. So while Gutenberg isn’t completely new, it may still seem like a big adjustment to your content creation process.

Are you using the Classic Editor and haven’t made the shift yet to the block editor? Or are you using Gutenberg but still want to learn more?

If so, join us at this session where we will look at the block editor and explore different types of blocks available in the block library.

We will also demonstrate reusable blocks and how they can be used to create templates.
This session will be introductory and suitable for anyone who maintains or operates a WordPress site.

China Dostal, the owner of China Dostal Website Development will be our speaker. She is the Web Services Manager at Moraine Valley Community College and also teaches an introduction to WordPress course at Moraine each spring. China runs the Southside chapter of this meetup.

As always, Holiday Club doors open at 6. The first hour is meet, greet, get/give help, the presentation starts at 7.
Plugs and wifi are very limited at the Holiday Club. If you can bring a fully charged machine and a hot spot to share – that would be awesome. While you’re here, order a burger or beer from our great host at the Holiday Club and network to your heart’s content.
